Movie Details

Carol Burnett and Alan Alda star in this TV version of the 1972 Broadway comedy 6 Rms Riv Vu. The title is New York Times shorthand for an available 6-room apartment with a river view. Two thirtysomething Manhattanites show up to look over this vacant apartment: Anne Miller (Carol Burnett), a bored housewife, and Paul Friedman (Alan Alda), an unhappily married advertising copywriter. The door is accidentally locked, and Anne and Paul are left alone together....and that's where the plotline -- and their relationship -- shifts into gear. Bob Randall adapted the script from his own play. 6 Rms Riv Vu was first telecast March 17, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
